One of he most frequently asked questions of Dr. Henry is: “Is chiropractic treatment a safe treatment option”? The short answer is not only yes, but in fact it is one of your safest treatment options for a variety of persistent pains.
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drugfree,
non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of
back pain, neck pain, joint pain of the arms or legs,
headaches, and other neuromusculoskeletal complaints.
Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no
health treatment is completely free of potential adverse
The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very
small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic
treatment, but some may sometimes experience
mild soreness or aching—similar to what they experience
after some forms of exercise—headaches and tiredness.
Current literature shows that minor discomfort or soreness
following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24
In addition to being a safe form of treatment, spinal manipulation and spinal decompression are incredibly effective, getting patients back on their
feet faster than traditional medical care. For example, a
2010 study in the medical journal Spine found that patients
with acute low back pain who received spinal manipulation
achieved equivalent or superior improvement in pain and
function when compared with other commonly used interventions,
such as physical modalities, medication, education,
or exercise, at short, intermediate and long-term follow-up.
